When should I file for an extension if I need more time.

Tax_questionQ) When should I file for an extension if I need more time.

A) According the the IRS: U.S. citizens and resident aliens who file calendar year returns are required to file a tax return by April 15.  However, taxpayers who are overseas on the due date receive an automatic extension of two months (generally until June 15 for calendar year filers).  If the last date for filing falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the return must be filed by the next day which is not a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday.  For your 2013 return to be considered timely filed, it must be postmarked by June 16, 2014.  A tax return delivered by U.S. mail or a designated delivery service that is postmarked or dated by the delivery service on or before the due date is considered to have been filed.  Keep your proof of international postage.  You may want to consider using a designated delivery service to ensure the delivery of your international correspondence.

  1. According to the IRS – Employees who do not have taxes withheld nor remit them personally, are still liable for these taxes and may not qualify for Social Security, Medicare, or unemployment benefits.

    Employees who are concerned that their employer is improperly withholding or failing to withhold federal income and employment taxes should report their employer by contacting the IRS at 1-800-829-1040. In cases where the employer withheld employment taxes but failed to deposit them, or failed to issue W-2s, the employee should contact the employer to request the W-2. If the employee is unable to secure a W-2 from the employer, the employee should complete and attach Form 4852, Substitute for W-2, to their tax return using the best information available to calculate the wages and the withholding. This information can often be secured from pay stubs.
